Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships between Hundreds of Plant Fatty Acids Synthesized by Thousands of Plants. more details ...
Abstract Cichorium intybus L (Kasni) seed oil (5.8%) was examined for its physico-chemical values and fatty acid composition by gas chromatography. The oil was fractionated by TLC into lipid classes; neutral lipids (56.74%) and polar lipids (43.26%). Fractionation of neutral lipids gave hydrocarbon wax-esters (6.46%), triglycerides (23.39%), free fatty acids (10.70%), 1,3-diglycerides (4.95%), 1,2-diglycerides (5.90%) 1-Monoglycerides (3.21%) and 2-Monoglycerides (2.13%). Polar lipids were separated into glycolipids (30.22%) and phospholipids (13.04%). All the lipid classes except phospholipids were studied for their fatty acid composition. Except for 2-Monoglycerides, all other lipid classes showed a similar fatty acids pattern, as the saturated fatty acids constituted 72-88% of the total. All the lipid classes have shown a fair amount of an odd numbered fatty acid (C17:O).
